Does anybody know where to find old, "historic" kernels? It seems
kernel.org doesn't have an ftp site anymore to archive all kernels.
No, they don't seem to, but the https: site seems to have kernels all
Thank you, that's what I need. I haven't been able to find that second
I found it by browsing to the first link (the short one), then clicking
the URL under "Location" next to "HTTP" under "Protocol" in the middle
of the screen. From there I clicked "linux" and then "kernel" to get
to the final link.
A pity the documents don't usually contain the clear date..
which starts as:
= Notes for linux release 0.01
= 0. Contents of this directory
= linux-0.01.tar.Z - sources to the kernel
= bash.Z - compressed bash binary if you want to test it
= update.Z - compressed update binary
And at the end we read:
= the name '/bin/sh', as that's what the kernel currently executes.
= Happy hacking.
= Linus Torvalds "***@kruuna.helsinki.fi"
= Petersgatan 2 A 2
= 00140 Helsingfors 14
That's where it happened! But when exactly did Linus write these words?
